In both celebrations, the theme was about thankfulness and praise to God for His love and faithfulness, and gratitude to their families, Sisters in the communities, and to the many people who helped them become who they are now at this stage of their lives, giving their all to God and to His people in the different places and centers where they were assigned throughout these fifty years.

It was also a great occasion for the sisters to see one another although online, from Bangladesh to Japan. It was a beautiful occasion of celebrating our life as one family of Mother Candida in the congregation as we warmly greeted one another with smiles, even laughter.
